New York Yankees
You know them and you HATE them. Well, maybe you don't hate them; maybe you love them. I'm a fan, and therefore, I love them, but the great laws of statistics and probability say you hate them. It's one …

Note: I'm re-writing some of my earliest reviews from my Teams Series because they're so far from the template they eventually evolved into.     I'm from Buffalo, New York, and when …
Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
Dragon Quest has been the pioneering name in RPGs since the 80's. In fact, Dragon Quest was the series that codified a lot of the little, established facts of life about RPGs that we now take for granted: …
Star Wars The Han Solo Trilogy #3: Rebel Dawn
Quick, somebody get George Lucas on the phone! It's time to show him how a prequel trilogy is really done.     If you've seen the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, it's pretty easy to nail …

My arrival in Chicago went exactly as planned, and I rolled in on the Amtrak right at 9 AM on Friday morning, just as I was supposed to. Except it wasn't 9 AM, it was actually 9 PM. And I wasn't riding …

Okay, I'm a real oddball. I make those ridiculous things known as New Year's Resolutions, and more and more, I keep them even as they grow more outlandish and grandiose. They help me keep track of the …

Burnout 2: Point of Impact
I have a quick confession to make: I don't like the Gran Turismo series. Now, that's not to say I have anything against it. By all means, the entire series is a marvel of technicality and incredible game …

I looked up the writers of the classic Frank Capra flick It's a Wonderful Life. Capra's name was among them, and when I did some further-depth research about his own life, I was a little surprised to …

Star Wars: Book of Sith
There are a million little bits and pieces of the Star Wars expanded universe, and of all of them, the one that fascinates me the most is the history of the Sith. Their history is uniquely odd; at one …

Seinfeld is famously The Show About Nothing. Now, what that means to me is that the characters are simply existing. We know very little about just who they are, what they do, and what they want. In the …
